Something like "I'm a blah blah blah cigar smoking, wine drinking, blah blah blah"

"Babyface" from Zooropa
The early 90's, Achtung Baby, and Zooropa brought U2 to a different celebrity plane. That of the supermodel! Of course we all know about the Adam/Naomi relationship. But it also brought along new friends like Kate Moss and Christy Turlington, who began making regular stops in Dublin. So this song could be written about any of them, or none of then, but not in the way that you think.
Certainly I didn't understand the song until I read the lyrics this morning. I had only focused on such lines as "Coming home late at night to turn you on, love" and "... let me untie your lace." Uh oh, Bono wants to be frisky. Little did I know, we must pay attention to ALL the lines to capture the full meaning. Because it isn't really about foreplay, it's about television! The mental image is supposed to be of a guy, sitting around watching TV *COpornUGH*, slowing the images, playing with the color and contrast, catching things in a freeze frame so many times, they become your best friend.
But the music plays it off as a love song. The intro is very playful, almost xylophone-y, the bass is more subtle. It's one of those songs that Edge backs almost the entire thing, and I find that slightly annoying. That and the "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba"s that invade later choruses. I don't like them, I find them awfully uncreative, and more of a distraction than an emphasis. Not sure what to think of Larry's drums, they're hardly there, and it's a very awkward beat.
Overall, a very odd duck of a song. But the lyrics are kinda fun to look at, now that I have a new meaning.

How do you think that would go over? I mean, if your kid DIES, would you want some teenager you barely know to hand you a CD of all things, acting like it will solve all your problems? Then again, the song could make her feel a little better. Please give me your opinion on this...
A handful of albums stretch to twelve tracks... but which song is the best?
What's the best track #12 on a U2 album?
Um yeah so let me know... :)
Oh yes, this was the Oct. 3rd Concert.
I have videos from both the 3rd and 4th. However the 4th I was GA, and I didn't think the videos would come out so well so I quit trying after about 70 odd combined seconds of Vertigo and Beautiful Day. THey came out alot better then I expected (you can actually see the band) but it's so shakey because people kept bumping me.
